Top 5 romance books
i’m not big on romance in books and I tend to lean more towards fantasy books which do often (but not always ) have romance in them, but it my not be the main focus of the book and even if it is there is enough going on that it’s not actually all about the romance, so if that is your sort of romance you like then hopefully you will like some of these.
The other merlin
Welcome to the great kingdom of Camelot. Prince Arthur’s a depressed botanist who would rather marry a library than a princess, Lancelot’s been demoted to castle guard after a terrible misunderstanding, and nothing is going according to plan. Then Arthur accidentally pulls the sword from the stone (in his defense, he was drunk and mostly kidding), and now everyone’s convinced he’s some prophesied hero.
Emry Merlin is stuck in her small town. Her father, the legendary court wizard, disappeared years ago, and Emry’s been peddling theater tricks to make ends meet. When a royal messenger arrives summoning her far less talented twin brother to serve as Prince Arthur’s right-hand wizard, Emry is understandably upset. But after Emmett becomes indisposed thanks to a bad spell, Emry disguises herself as her brother and travels to the royal court to impersonate him until they can switch.
Studying magic at the castle is everything Emry hoped for. But life in King Uther’s court is full of scandals, lies, and backstabbing courtiers. What’s a teen wizard masquerading as her twin brother to do? Other than fall for the handsome prince, stir trouble with the foppish Lord Gawain, offend Princess Guinevere, and make herself indispensable to the future of Camelot?
When the truth comes out with disastrous consequences, Emry has to decide whether she’ll risk everything for the boy she loves, or give up her potential to become the greatest wizard Camelot has ever known.
The romance in this book is similar to the classic rom-coms, I love that Emry and Arther become friends first before they start to see each other as something more.
After centuries of sleep, the gods are warring again. But eighteen-year-old Iris Winnow just wants to hold her family together. Her mother is suffering from addiction and her brother is missing from the front lines. Her best bet is to win the columnist promotion at the Oath Gazette.
To combat her worries, Iris writes letters to her brother and slips them beneath her wardrobe door, where they vanish—into the hands of Roman Kitt, her cold and handsome rival at the paper. When he anonymously writes Iris back, the two of them forge a connection that will follow Iris all the way to the front lines of battle: for her brother, the fate of mankind, and love.
I don’t think I’ve actually fallen in love with a romance as much as I’ve fallen for this two ever, Rebecca has done such a good job of making this romance believable it is such a nice slow romance where they both start to stop disliking the other and find they like them instead. This one is an enemies to lovers trope but I think that the inclusion of the letters which I found very you’ve got Mail and the fact that I feel they both respect the other person talent in writing that it never really feels like they are enemies.
Howls moving castle
Sophie has the great misfortune of being the eldest of three daughters, destined to fail miserably should she ever leave home to seek her fate. But when she unwittingly attracts the ire of the Witch of the Waste, Sophie finds herself under a horrid spell that transforms her into an old lady. Her only chance at breaking it lies in the ever-moving castle in the hills: the Wizard Howl’s castle. To untangle the enchantment, Sophie must handle the heartless Howl, strike a bargain with a fire demon, and meet the Witch of the Waste head-on. Along the way, she discovers that there’s far more to Howl—and herself—than first meets the eye.
Weather its the film or the book I really like Sophie and Howl’s story and the fact that there are two sequels so you can see a bit of what they are upto after the first book is really nice.
The shadowhunter Chronicles
the shadowhunts chronicles consists of 5 Series (at the moment) and three short story collections (at the moment), all following a group of shadowhunters (people who hunt demand) and downworlders (werewolves, vampires and warlocks) on there many adventures.
ok here me out I know that some of the romances are a bit odd but what I really like about these books is the mix of romance and I rarely ever feel that I prefer one over another I also like that even though it is relationship heavy it never feels like it takes over the adventure and just adds to the story.
Geekerella and other Once upon a con books
Geek girl Elle Wittimer lives and breathes Starfield, the classic sci-fi series she grew up watching with her late father. So when she sees a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie, she has to enter. The prize? An invitation to the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball, and a meet-and-greet with the actor slated to play Federation Prince Carmindor in the reboot. With savings from her gig at the Magic Pumpkin food truck (and her dad’s old costume), Elle’s determined to win…unless her stepsisters get there first.
Teen actor Darien Freeman used to live for cons—before he was famous. Now they’re nothing but autographs and awkward meet-and-greets. Playing Carmindor is all he’s ever wanted, but Starfield fandom has written him off as just another dumb heartthrob. As ExcelsiCon draws near, Darien feels more and more like a fake—until he meets a girl who shows him otherwise. But when she disappears at midnight, will he ever be able to find her again?
Part romance, part love letter to nerd culture, and all totally adorbs, Geekerella is a fairy tale for anyone who believes in the magic of fandom.
I had to increase this books somewhere ashley poston is probably the only author who will get me reading there contemporary novels because there is so much fandom stuff thron in it adds to the romance. Geekerella is the first and it is the classic cinderella story but with a lovely modern twist and the rest of books in the series are just as wonderful I think my favourite is bookish and the beast which is a beauty and the best retaling.
And there you go that is my favourites, do you have any favourite?
I’m doing a bit of a valentines special month as it is February so I hope you like this romantic theme blogs.
